House endorses four ordinances amidst mayhem
KATHMANDU: A meeting of the House of Representatives on Wednesday endorsed four ordinances on amid protest for the main opposition CPN-UML.
Information and Communications Minister Gyanendra Bahadur Karki presented the Nepal Police and Provincial Police (Operation, Coordination and Supervision) Ordinance 2078, Acid and Other Fatal Chemicals (Regulation) Ordinance 2078, Social Security (First Amendment) Ordinance 2078 and Railway Ordinance 2078 at the Parliament meeting this afternoon which were endorsed by majority votes.
The UML lawmakers resorted to sloganeering as soon as Speaker Agni Prasad Sapkota announced the commencement of the House proceedings.
Earlier on December 3, UML Chairman KP Sharma Oli had said that his party would continue obstructing the House proceedings until the 14 lawmakers expelled by his party attend the Parliament meetings.
The next meeting has been scheduled for 1 pm on January 2.
